I recently had the fortune of test flying three independent light sources for nighttime flying. Depending on what your project is, you might want to illuminate the crops below you; a person walking or in a vehicle; or your background hills, buildings, etc. Aircraft used for testing purposes were the DJI Phantom 3 Advanced and 3DR Solo. We are going to take a comparative look at Lume Cube lights, FoxFury’s Rugo lights, and the Fiilex AL250 lights. The first two are not necessarily built with drone flight in mind, but their size, shape, and weight lend themselves to these aircraft. The Fiilex AL250 is a unit you’ve no doubt already heard about, a collaborative project between 3DR and Fiilex. The AL250 is the only light I would not attempt to install on the Phantom 3—there’s no place to put it. To see more on this, click on the image:
